Here is how History will remember former POTUS Jimmy Carter.... [View all]

When Jimmy Carter lost to Ronald Reagan in the 1980 Presidential election, he did not protest the results, throw a hissy fit, refuse to have a peaceful transfer of power, or call on his supporters to storm the Capitol on January 6th 1981. He did what any former-POTUS-to-be, he FOLLOWED tradition! Former POTUS Jimmy Carter will go down in history as not only a gracious loser, but a decent human being who lived his faith in the most obvious and gracious of ways in the service of others.
